Paul McCartney Wins Israel's Wolf Prize


Paul McCartney has been announced as one of nine recipients of the 2018 Wolf Prize, also known as the "Israeli Nobel Prize."

"Together with the prize committee, I and many Israelis share the eternal love for the works of Sir Paul McCartney and the Beatles," President Reuven Rivlin said announcing the prize.

"Sir Paul McCartney is one of the greatest songwriters of all time," the Wolf Foundation said in a statement. "His versatility underlies an extraordinary wingspan, from the most physical rock to melodies of haunting and heartbreaking intimacy. His lyrics have an equally broad range, from the naive and the charming to the poignant and even desperate. He has touched the hearts of the entire world, both as a Beatle and in his subsequent bands."

The prizes will be awarded to the winners by Rivlin at an official ceremony at the Knesset in Jerusalem at the end of May.
